Coronavirus: UAE confirms no Covid-19 deaths for a fourth day as 189 new cases are recorded

Another 227 patients beat the virus as the recovery tally rose above 55,000

The UAE confirmed 189 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday as no deaths were recorded for a fourth consecutive day.

The country's recovery tally climbed to 55,090 after a further 227 patients were given the all-clear.

The latest infections, which were identified after an additional 29,398 tests were carried out, bring the number of cases in the Emirates to 61,352.

The nationwide death toll stands at 351.

More than 5.2 million Covid-19 tests have been conducted since the outbreak began.

The number of new cases remained below 200 for a second day, offering a boost to the country's efforts to contain the virus.

On Monday, the UAE announced its lowest cases total since April 1 after 164 infections were detected.

Officials are making significant progress in their efforts to eliminate the spread of Covid-19 across Abu Dhabi.

In Abu Dhabi City, just 0.3 per cent of those recently screened had the virus, down from about 1 per cent in June, new figures show.

The figure for Al Ain was 0.6 per cent and 0.4 per cent for Al Dhafra.

Below 1 per cent is regarded as a significant marker in tackling the outbreak.

On Monday, officials said a door-to-door testing campaign in the emirate would continue until the 'Covid-19 fight is won'

“We will continue and fight til the end, until we reach zero cases,” said Mansoor Al Qubaisi, an official from Seha, Abu Dhabi's public hospitals operator.
